It is all about sharing; isn’t it? I ask this question in reference to life. Everyone may have a different understanding of life; this is to be expected. My understanding of life is that all objects (forms) that have any cellular properties “exist”. We, as a life form species exist to share life; as with all species, great or small. I tend to feel that even a totally lifeless form has a tendency to “live”. The reason for this is that life is a universal vibration. It is to say that every thing in the universe is sharing life. Life resonates through living and non-living forms.
This vibrating life impulse is constant; but susceptible to fluctuation due to life form output vibrations; whether from thought energy, consciousness energy or both. A given reality takes on a portrait derived from your thoughts. It becomes a supposed reality because we composed this picture in your mind. Each person can; by process of individual and shared thoughts, manifest realities. These are based on the given projected energy fluctuation; whether personal or collective. Perhaps this projected energy is also two fold; this according to thought (mind) energy output and conscious energy output in a state of awareness.
Everything is sharing this field of life energy. I often wrestle with the notion of calling this field “life energy”. Is this simply the way we describe this dimension to the best of our abilities? Here again everyone will surly have his or her own understanding of this field of energy. My preference is not to actually consider this dimension to be a life energy field. I tend to feel that this dimension is based on that certain something that we often call consciousness. Since no one has as yet isolated “what” consciousness is, we must rely on what resounds through our body and mind.
This vibration is universal. It accommodates the manifestation of our thoughts and conscious awareness. Perhaps you have heard others speaking of this as “the self experiencing its self or consciousness being conscious of consciousness”. Swami Rajneesh writes: “being aware of awareness itself only consciousness can get you there to the truth of yourself the immortal inner being…”
There is also a constant sharing that we experience. It is obtainable for us through an aware state of being here now. Manifestations from within our existence will then occur from thoughts that are in harmony with universal consciousness.
“We can see the same spirit in everybody only when we know we are that spirit, Atman or Self. Only a person who has understood his own Self can see that Self in everybody” “Though we can’t always see it at the time, if we look upon events with some perspective, we see things always happen for our best interests. We are always being guided in a way better than we know ourselves.” “We can see the same spirit in everybody only when we know we are that spirit, Atman or Self. Only a person who has understood his own Self can see that Self in everybody.”
